Adventist HealthCare Limited

Dalcross Adventist Hospital was acquired in 2010 by Adventist HealthCare Limited, based in Wahroonga NSW. Adventist HealthCare Limited (formerly known as ‘Sydney Adventist Hospital Limited’), is owned by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and is a ‘Not-For-Profit’ organisation that operates a number of healthcare businesses including: Sydney Adventist Hospital, Dalcross Adventist Hospital, San Day Surgery Hornsby and San Radiology.

The organisation originated with the opening of ‘Sydney Sanitarium’ in 1903 - a place of health and healing where people learned to stay well. Sydney Adventist Hospital, fondly referred to as ‘The San’, is NSW’s largest single campus private hospital and remains the organisation’s Australian flagship institution as it grows its services to meet community needs.

Celebrating 110 years in 2013, caring for our patients needs is our first priority. This spirit of caring is reflected in our mission, “Christianity in Action – caring for the body, mind and spirit of our patients, colleagues, community and ourselves’. We aim to care for individuals in a holistic manner, promoting healthy living, providing state-of-the-art acute healthcare, and touching people’s lives through our compassionate and expert care.
